We the members of the Alexandria Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 609 salute our Comrade Chuck Terio for his years of military service, particularly in sharing his Vietnam War experiences with us. Chuck will always be a "life member" of VFW. We especially thank him for his numerous contributions to Post 609, particularly his ever present leadership in conducting the annual December Wreaths Across America event, and the Memorial Day posting of American Flags on the almost 4300 gravesites of our veteran heroes buried in the Alexandria National Cemetery. Semper fi Chuck. Cdr, G. Krueger, VFW Post 609
